These delicious lunch lady peanut butter bar cookies are delicious and tasty! Also in a peanut free and nut free version!
I grew up in California where we were often subjected to the latest craze in our school lunches. When low fat diets were the trend, kids lunches became low fat. When healthy, low saturated, low fat diets became the trend, school lunch treats became an apple and those pretty little decorated sugar cookies that my mom would never let me eat at home were no more. And then my school lunch became nut, grain, gluten, soy, refined sugar, dairy and corn free. So pretty much school lunch became a salad everyday with different veggies on top.
It's no wonder that later down the road I became a sugar addict.
So, to relive my childhood and help my kids understand that treats in a school lunch are OK!! and FUN!! I made these delicious tasting lunch lady peanut butter bar cookies. I made them refined sugar free though and you can make them peanut free too.
